Carbon Composite Technologies (CCT) will be introducing their recently patented hybrid fibreglass/carbon nano textile fabric designed for use in the manufacturing of fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) products.
According to CCT, the novelty of the material is that it combines the strength and light weight of carbon nano fibres with the cost efficiency of fiberglass. CCT is estimating the sale of approximately 10,000,000 linear yards requiring more than 2000 pounds of multiwall carbon nanotubes to achieve their projections and necessary manufacturing equipment and facilities have already been identified.
CCT claim their patented fabric has a similar cost to fibreglass with physical characteristics superior to carbon fibre fabrics, while meeting national standards for strength, corrosion resistance, and durability. They say an additional proprietary feature of the technology and material is that it can be resistively heated to reduce moulding production time and energy requirements.
